Best Weight Scales For Home Use

People start eating high fat, low weight for different reasons. For me it was to get healthy and get down to a more normal weight. For my boy friend, it was to reverse is type 2 diabetes. And of course we are both concerned about non alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Regardless of the reason, it is really important to know where you are starting from. This way you can track your progress and see how you are doing.

Using an accurate scale can help you know where you stand so you can track your results.

These days, body scales are pretty reasonably priced and they have lots of bells and whistles. Plus many of them include a phone application so you can track your results as often as you would like.

The scale that I recommend is the Weight Gurus Bluetooth Smart Connected Body Fat Scale with Large Backlit LCD, by Greater Goods (Black) because it is very accurate. Some scales seem to give fluctuating results. I’ve had other scales where I can get off than back on and get a different reading each time. This one is always the same.

It is really easy to read as the numbers are very large. I don’t even need to wear my glasses.

But the best part is that your results upload to the application on your smartphone through Bluetooth. So you can clearly see your results and any sorts of changes in your weight loss or weight gain real time. I’m a bit of a geek and I like to check  my weight often.

This scale will also help to keep track of your BMI as well although for me, that isn’t as important.

The Weight Gurus Digital Body Fat Scale with Large Backlit LCD and Smartphone Tracking (black) is also a good option for someone with a smaller budget. It does everything as the the other scale but rather than having a Bluetooth option, this one syncs with your smartphone through an app. You still get quick results, and you get to save a bit of money.

Along with the weight loss I really get motivated by checking my body measurements as well. I find that even when I don’t lose any weight, I will see my measurements go down. And this is very exciting.

Using a good tape measure, you should measure your right arm, right thigh and your waist.

Placement of the measure is easy, for your arm simply measure the point between your elbow and shoulder. Your thigh you should measure between your hip and knee. And your waist should be measured along your belly button.

 

Make Your Own Bulletproof Coffee

My favorite part of my day is my first cup of home made bulletproof coffee. Yummy!

Bulletproof coffee is simply coffee with added fat. There are many different kinds of fat that you can add to your coffee. Some people simply add heavy whipping cream to their coffee while others use extra virgin coconut oil or clarified butter (ghee) or butter from grass fed cows.

I love bulletproof coffee because it helps my body to burn more of its own fat.

First of all, it tastes so yummy. I like coffee with both cream and butter. But sometimes I do cream and coconut oil. And if I’m eating out at a restaurant I will just use butter. The reason is most restaurants only offer half and half which has sugar (from the milk). So, I just ask the waitress to please give me a few pats of butter and although I get weird faces they always bring it to me. But I gotta check. Believe it or not, some places only carry margarine and of course I don’t want that crap. So in that case, I just drink my coffee black.

You can make your own bulletproof coffee easily at home.

I love bulletproof coffee

Make your own coffee bulletproof coffee. I suggest spending the extra money and buy a good quality premium coffee like Black&Gold. I prefer to buy coffee in the bean form and I grind them myself. You will love it if you do this. The coffee smells so good and it tastes better than anything you can get out at a restaurant.

If you have never used a coffee grinder, you should try it. Your coffee smells so fresh and tasted delicious. You will never buy already ground coffee again. And they are not very expensive.

The coffee grinder we use at home is the Mr. Coffee IDS77 Electric Coffee Blade Grinder. I love that this grinder makes it easy to measure the perfect amount. Plus I can choose how I want it ground. I prefer a very fine grind. The Best thing about this grinder is that you can twist the bowl off the top and easily pour it into your coffee filter.

If I’m just making one cup then I just use my Keurig along with the brew filter so I can add my own freshly ground coffee. But it is up to you. Many of the k-cups taste pretty good.

Choose any of the options below as your fat. By adding fat, you will help encourage your body to burn more fat and you will also not feel hungry. I often am able to skip breakfast simply because I’m not hungry. My bulletproof coffee is enough.

Best Fats For Bullet Proof Coffee:

Heavy Whipping Cream: I love cream. It is so creamy and yummy. Now that I use it in my coffee, I wonder why I didn’t try it before.

Ghee (clarified oil) or butter: I love the different flavor I get in my coffee. I prefer salted butter. It just gives the coffee a unique taste. For me, this is my preference.

Extra virgin coconut oil: I like this because it gives the coffee a slightly coconut taste while making it taste creamy. This is my boyfriends preference. Tip-make sure it says “extra virgin” or you will not be getting the same quality.

How you make it is up to you.

Skeptical? Don’t knock it til you try it.

I know, I was hesitant to try it. Now, I will only drink my coffee with fat added to it. It tastes good and it makes me a fat burning machine.

How about you? Do you drink bullet proof coffee? If not, will you try it?
